One of 90 Day Fiancé‘s
happiest couples have called it quits.
Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno, who made their debut on “90 Day Fiance” before going on to star in their own spin-off, The Family Chantel, are ending things after Pedro filed for divorce in May, according to ET.
While Pedro did not file until May, documents obtained by TMZ claim he and Chantel had separated the month prior. Pedro is seeking an equitable division of all marital property.
The site also reports that on the day Pedro filed for divorce, he filed a motion claiming Chantel withdrew $275,000 from their joint account to an account in her sister’s name. Pedro claims this transfer took place five days before he and Chantel separated.
Pedro reportedly asked a judge to make Chantel transfer the cash back to a joint account until it can be divided in the divorce; however, the judge denied the request for an emergency hearing. Instead, the judge stated that the court would set a hearing for another date to resolve the issue.
ET reports that a mutual restraining order was filed the same day in May, as well.
In her response to Pedro’s divorce filing, Chantel accuses Pedro of adultery and “cruel treatment.” She states that Pedro is guilty of committing “physical domestic violence” as well as causing her “mental pain.”
In legal papers filed on Thursday in Georgia, Chantel writes that her marriage to Pedro “is irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”
According to ET, Chantel asked the court to equally distribute their material debt. She also wants Pedro ordered to return her cell phone, as well as the backup storage devices for her phone and computer.
News of the husband and wife’s breakup comes after a history of ups and downs, many of which involved Pedro & Chantel’s respective family members.
Fans of ‘The Family Chantel’ have seen the couple continue to struggle during the currently-airing season of their show, with recent episodes showing Pedro accusing Chantel of being lazy, and Chantel raising concerns about a female co-worker of Pedro’s.
The legal separation of the two was also teased in a preview for Season 4 that aired last month, with Pedro and Chantel discussing the possibility of going their separate ways.
As of press time, Pedro and Chantel have both remained silent on their split.
